The Senate President, Ahmed Lawan has warned service chiefs that anyone of them found not to be living up to expectations would be sacked.

Lawan issued the warning while speaking with State House correspondents on Sunday after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari on the increasing rate of security issues in the country.

According to him, he believed in providing more resources for the nation’s security agents and the need for the heads of the agencies to sit up or be fired.

“I think we must tell ourselves the truth that the security situation in the country, especially in the northern part of the country, requires that we give much more resources to the security agencies.

“Those who are heading these agencies, especially the service chiefs, must sit up. In fact, we must have milestones and timelines on how we are going to deal with this. We can’t just go on without any time frame for dealing with these issues.

“If after we provide some supports and someone is found short of expectations, he should be shown the way out if he refuses to go. This is because the lives of Nigerians are so precious and therefore must be more important than any other considerations or sentiments.”

This is coming barely four days after President Buhari told the Service Chiefs that their “best is not good enough” in view of the security challenges being experienced across the country.
